Bloke that knows I had a brush with the Navy decades ago asked wot wos these Navy police then, we always had them says I, they were the regulating branch back in the day, its just a case of the Navy trying to polish a turd, he asked what they did and that got me thinking, what did they do when a ship went to action stations.

On a sweeper it's a PO Diver that is the reggie.
He does: Reggying
Bomb Disposal Officer
Whole ship coordinator
Anything no one else wants to take ownership of.
My experience of reggies is they (until reaching Jossman) know very little about their job. Not a dig, but you get these thickos on board in all their Hi Viz shit thinking they are actually coppers and they cannot answer basic questions about reggying. Really embarrassing I think. You start asking AFA bits and as Coxswainrs we feel that they haven't even seen the JSP. Their stock answer is call the desk MAA. All very well but aren't you meant to be the SME's? Glad you feel you can send us to sea after a two week coffee course to do your job for you.
On the flip side there were some very knowledgable Master at Arms who actually knew their shit and weren't dolled up in stab vests etc.Dum Spiro Spero
I didn't attend his funeral but wrote a nice letter saying I approved of it.
In a fraction of a second they are projected into eternity and will never possess a final resting home.
They have graves without bodies, they are an exceptional breed of people....
It is an utmost proudness of myself to have met these men, those lords that I salute, praise and admire.

Left Faslane going South had a few woke up on a sweeper in Rosyth, it was about the same size and construction as a cheap Ikea wardrobe, fcuk going to sea on that, stayed a couple of days, run ashore in Queensferry, played football for them, good lot, didnt see anyone being shunned so I assumed no reggie on board. Whats a section base in old money.

When I was a child I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child.
When I became a man I joined Rum Ration, it was a natural progression.
But with swearing.
